Jessica Chastain says Chris Hemsworth is 'a very good kisser'

By Sarah Walker

It seems Jessica Chastain isn't afraid to kiss and tell - at least where her leading men are concerned. The actress revealed a steamy tidbit about her The Huntsman: Winter's War co-star Chris Hemsworth while on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (Apr. 20): that he's a good kisser.

"He's like a foot taller than me so he’s probably 6'5", he's really funny and he's got the most beautiful, perfect family and he's a great Dad. It's just like ugh," she told fans of the Australian heartthrob.

She went on to dish about his flawless smooches: "He's a very good kisser... He's perfect, annoyingly. Elsa [Pataky]'s a lucky woman."

The 39-year-old also told the TV host that the father of three is the only reason she's starring in the much-anticipated action film. He reportedly gave her the script when the two were at the Critics Choice Awards.

"I had [played] this string of characters going through really depressing events," she said. "I'm a workaholic, I spend like 80 per cent of my life working, so I realized that 80 per cent of my life was really depressing. So I wanted to do something fun."

Hemsworth also recently opened up to Metroabout what it was like to work with the redheaded star.

"I was blown away by her skill set and athleticism. A few times I was watching her do fight scenes and was a little jealous at how acrobatic she was and what she was able to pull off. She came at it with the best attitude: She wanted to do something different, something fun."

On top of The Huntsman, the Golden Globe-winning actress has two movies in the works -- The Zookeeper's Wife and Miss Sloane. She'll also lend her voice to the animated series Animals in 2016.
